William Cornell and his wife Mary posing before their pub.
William is seated with his grandchild in a cart pulled by a white horse.

The sign over the door reads:
"William Cornell, licensed to retail beer to be consumed on the premises.
Dealer in tobacco. Licensed brewer."

William was listed as a brewer and beerhouse keeper until 1892, when he was
listed as a publican. He was married to Mary A. Cornell, and they had a daughter
Susan Jarvis, married to Alfred Jarvis. They had 2 sons: Ernest W. and Alfred C.
Ernest was born in 1879, around the time the photo was made.

The pub was later known as the Butchers Arms on Sewards End Road. The address then
became 4 Walden Road in Saffron Walden. In 1936 the pub was renamed "The Green Dragon".
The pub closed in 1994 and was demolished in 1996, to make way for 8 new houses.
